The exotic paradise of Mauritius has been recognised as the top destination for weddings and honeymoons at the World Travel Market. Mauritius was awarded ‘Best Wedding and Honeymoon Destination’ and ‘Best Long Haul Destination for Spa and Wellness’ by travel agents at the recent 2014 World Travel Market (WTM) held in London. Mauritius attracts couples from around the world looking to celebrate their wedding in style or to enjoy the island’s world-renowned spas for a romantic and luxurious honeymoon escape. This stunning tropical paradise enjoys high visibility in the English market, with travellers prefering Mauritius over other destinations because of its accessibility through different airline routes including direct flights with Air Mauritius, or via hubs Dubai and Paris.
The World Travel Market 2014 saw Dr. Karl Mootoosamy as well as 30 local partners of the tourism industry gather in London for this prestigious event. This yearly event is an important get-together for the professionals of the travel industry and visitors. The Mauritian partners had the opportunity to discover the latest trends in tourism and to meet with travel agents, tour operators and other key players of the industry to plan and discuss future projects. www.tourism-mauritius.mu
